Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Monday Musings - Trust
I don't trust that others' are speaking their truth to me for the very same reasons I don't always share truthfully. I don't trust that others' will do what they say they will do. I don't trust the reasons people give me for not doing something. As someone close to me told me recently, I make up my own stories about the whys and wherefores. Which makes sense, since I'm a writer. But it doesn't make sense in the real world.
How do you discern whether someone is being truthful? How do you learn to trust yourself enough to speak the truth and trust the outcome, whatever that may be?
How about you? What are you musing about today?
